We will meet in Lulea and go over our equipment and the itinerary. We will make sure we have all of our supplies for the upcoming expedition as well.
Our train from Lulea to Abisko in the north will take about six hours, sending us into the interior. We will stay in a hotel to rest for the next day’s journey.
The next week or so will be spend cross-country skiing through the immaculate terrain of Lapland and traversing across its remote natural beauty. Along the way you will learn about surviving in the unforgiving landscape. Nights will be spent in tents across the region.
We reserve this day for adverse weather or any other circumstance that may get in the way of our previous schedule. If conditions have been favorable, we will continue our traverse and have an extra day to ski.
We will culminate our traverse in Stora Sjofallet. The evening will be spent in a cabin.
After packing our bags and equipment, we will travel back to Lulea to prepare for the end of our trip the next day.
After an unforgettable adventure, we will return home and make plans to return to Lapland soon.
We will meet in Lulea, Sweden.
We will be staying in hotels in Lulea before and after the traverse. During the cross-country skiing trip, we will be staying in a tent along the journey.
I am David and I live near the Pyrenees Mountains.
I am a Mountain Leader, with international certification UIMLA, and I am an Arctic Guide and Wilderness Guide by WGA (Wilderness Guides Association), too.
I am a mountain-lover. I like the nature and everything related to it. I like doing any activity in the nature and I like sharing it with the people who have the same interests as me.
I respect the people and the local cultures and I try that my activity has a positive effect on the area where I do it.
I absolutely think that to enjoy the mountain and do it with safety it is necessary that you are trained, both technically and physically. This is the reason why my life is a constant learning experience.
I like knowing where I am and who lives in that zone. I like knowing all that happens around me and all that happened before and I like to observe the tracks and signs that the animals make.
I practice the "Leave no trace". That is, when I go to the mountain to enjoy it and to enjoy its nature I do not want that my presence becomes noticeable, both during my stay and after.
This way to understand the mountain and the nature makes me practice a lot of sports and I choose the most appropriate discipline and modality in every situation.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
